I don't want to sway you from selling, since you have your reasons and every business owner gets to the point where they want to move on to something else at some point... BUT.. Years ago I was "this" close to selling my site. We actually agreed on the price... but what we could not agree on was the delivery of payment. The buyer wanted to may me installments over time. I wanted lump sum.
Long story short, I opted to keep the site and put it on auto-pilot. That was about 9 years ago. Today the site makes more money in a month than what I almost sold it for back then. So maybe the sale falling through is not a bad thing...
But if you are ready to move on, I completely understand. Now that it is 10 years later, I can see myself getting closer to selling again. Just for a change of pace!
